no argument here...that's part of the improvising game..but you have to admit that sometimes it had nothing to do with pushing the envelope and a lot to do with being burned out or high as hell

"but you have to admit that sometimes it had nothing to do with pushing the envelope and a lot to do with being burned out or high as hell"

absolutely. unfortunately, that can be said about a significant part of the music after 1977. jerry still flourished with his side projects, but he clearly wasn't as focused on the grateful dead as he was the first 10 years. a bad day for jerry, meant a bad day for the whole band. and as his addiction worsened, those days became more frequent.
